Stayed here one night recently in the family room with a mezzanine in it. Great size room but unfortunately not overlooking the sea which was a disappointment. Fantastic location right in the middle of everything so all walkable. However, no parking onsite but there is a car park 200 yards away for Long Term Parking at Quay Street - £6.50... More

I go to Scarborough several times a year but often book a cottage near Cayton. This time as we were only going for the night we thought we would book something on the front. The Ivy House is easily recognisable if you have been to Scarborough, a beautiful white ivy covered building literally across the road from the harbour. I... More

We stayed here during a visit to the outdoor theatre and booked the last room well in advance (about 2-3 months). However a month before we were due to arrive we had a call from Ivy House to ask why we hadn't turned up. We'd booked through a 3rd party site and our booking date had been input incorrectly by...

Chose to eat here after previous good visit but sadly disappointed. We ordered a simple lunch of jacket potatoes and a pot of tea. The tea was weak like dishwater. The jacket potatoes arrived a good size with a side salad. Unfortunately the salad was warmer than the potatoes. The potatoes tasted liked the frozen variety which had been reheated... More

Booked as a last minute trip away, and was left disappointed, the rooms although relatively clean had a slightly musty feel about them, Breakfast the next morning was left mostly untouched, but in fairness that was probably due to my self inflicted bad head

Me and my family stayed last weekend for te Tour de Yorkshire. Rooms were lovely, clean and spacious. The views over the harbour were spectacular. Breakfast was good as was the service throughout. I would certainly stay again even though it's a bit on the expensive side for Scarborough.

We stopped off at Ivy House for an English breakfast whilst visiting Scarborough for the day. The portions were quite small compared to other places we've been (1 sausage, 1 egg, 1 slice of bacon) but it did taste like it was of a good quality. The staff were friendly and helpful, a special thanks to the waitress who came... More

Not the best place it's a place for holiday makers so I would give it a miss and keeps changing hands. Some others places around the area are a lot better😕. Try if you want but fish was watery and did not taste fresh
